Kellyanne Conway may have managed to get Donald Trump to Washington, but she is finding it harder to do the same for her children.
Conway, who will serve a counselor to Trump in the White House, reportedly confided in friends about how difficult it has been to find a DC school for her children.
She was apparently telling parents at Elisabeth Morrow School in Englewood, New Jersey about the uphill battle during a student concert last week, according to the New York Post.
Conway’s twins, George and Claudia, currently take classes at the exclusive private school.
‘After the concert, all the parents converged on Kellyanne, congratulating and sucking up to her,’ the newspaper claims an insider said.
‘Kellyanne is asking everyone with connections to DC schools for help.’
President Obama and the First Lady sent their daughters Malia and Sasha to Sidwell Friends School when the family moved to DC.
Bill and Hillary Clinton also chose Sidwell for daughter Chelsea, as did Al and Tipper Gore for their son Albert Gore III, after they won the 1992 election.
Malia and Chelsea both graduated from Sidwell, and the Obamas have made the decision to stay in DC so that Sasha can finish out high school at the highly selective Quaker institution.
The 49-year-old is married to New York lawyer George T. Conway III, and the couple has four children together.
However, Conway hit back at the allegations, instead claiming she is potentially being treated unfairly due to her Trump ties.
‘I would not characterize myself as “worried” so much as amused by the silence and sighs on the other end of the phone when friends and allies have made preliminary inquiries on our behalf,’ she told the Post.
Conway was tapped as a member of Trump’s official cabinet last week, despite previously saying she would not join his White House team.
The transition team described her position as that of a close adviser to Trump, who would work alongside his senior leadership to ‘effectively message and execute the administration’s legislative priorities and actions.’
‘Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory,’ Trump said in the release.
‘She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message,’ the president-elect continued. ‘I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing.’
